Hi Tomas, hi everyone,

The templates are for version 3.1. This is a homemade contraption, used
by very few people apparently. I update them manually from the complete
pages, but at times it is difficult to keep up with Zak's modifications
(which ideally should be done directly in the templates). This is why I
left them at the previous version.

Right now, it is probably better to translate the html files directly,
but I also tried to use POs and that works. I made one big POT file with
all the strings in it, and regenerated all the pages from it with
po4a-translate. This method may be more convenient for new translations.
And for old ones too, once the translations are converted. I'll post it
here if anyone is interested.

I don't think it should be mentioned in the wiki at this stage. The
kitchen set up was added at version 2.1, in the hope that further
modifications would be made in the templates rather than the originals,
but this never happened so far.
